Direction Vermont

Oops! I added a lot of info to this page, but I wasn't signed in!

If anyone wants extra advice for hitchhiking to or from Montreal, let me know. It is one of the easiest cities to hitchhike to, but hard to get out of. I just found the golden way to get out, by bus, in the direction of Vermont, and I am so happy I found this alternative, since rideshares between NYC or Boston and Montreal are few and far between...

One thing though... there is no highway 133 in Quebec, the south-east direction is towards Sherbrooke (and yes St-Jean-sur-Richelieu) but its highway 10. So after St-Jean I can't really see what your path was, it looks more like you did some country roads Maplefanta 03:06, 8 September 2007 (CEST)


There is a RTE 133 in Quebec, as you can clearly see from this map. The point I was trying to make is that avoiding highway 10 at all costs is best if you're trying to get down South through Vermont, since if you cross into NY State (where everyone goes from highway 10), the Customs will not be so keen on letting a hitchhiker through in a state where hitchhiking is illegal. Vermont, on the other hand, is pretty friendly, but the roads that lead to 133, which leads to the Vermont border, are smaller than highway 10 (and I think, even easier to hitchhike on). I have done this route 3 times by hitchhiking, and each time is much better than the one time I tried hitchhiking through Upstate NY and got into trouble with the police. These roads that lead to 133, from St-Jean sur Richelieu are 35 S and 104 E, which I have included in the article (a combined road, which leads into RTE 133 once it passes Sabrevois).
This is my exact route, from the bus stop in St-Jean sur Richelieu (toward Burlington). Amylin


Ok, 133 is a provincial/regional route. Seems like a valid path, but it isn't the natural one that we, as canadian, would take to go down to the States. It is more of local access. Highway 10 though, does not lead to the NY State border at all, it goes exclusively East and never reaches the border. It is a highway meant to serve Sherbrooke and the Eastern Township from Montreal, which is major town in the province. So, you mean highway 15 that leads to NY State, not the 10 (which is it would ultimately be completed would lead to New Brunswick or Maine). In Sherbrooke though you can switch to highway 55 that leads into Vermont and New Hampshire, and which is the natural ways that people from the North would take (to go to Boston) which becomes the Interstate 91 once in Vermont. This information will have to be added to the one you provide (and especially including that highway 10 leads to Sherbrooke, and then from Sherbrooke the information to head more south to the States would be written there. I would usually imply that someone is more keen on going to Sherbrooke than to the States by hitching from Montreal.) Maplefanta 23:48, 12 September 2007 (CEST)


Search city name

Small problem if you search for Laval, France or click on a link you get on the page of Montreal

Fixed, thanks :) There is no information about the french Laval here. Feel free to add it, if you know something ;) --MrTweek 10:11, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
